With the demise of the Temple 100 in 2000 following several serious accidents, the honour of being the oldest road race on the island of Ireland passed to the Cookstown 100, which was first held as a 30-mile event on Thursday, June 15, 1922. This makes the Cookstown race four months older than the Ulster Grand Prix, which was first held on Saturday, October 14, 1922.

More history of the event can be read at the link below.

It is always a pleasure to promote 'real' racing, not that the old airfield stuff isn't any good!

"Real" racing indeed! Can't argue with that. Cool

I say, it looks a bit dangerous and if it rains won´t you get wet?

Comment I heard about racing motorcycles being shown on TV....

Cheers!

I went to work by motorcycle for many years. Whenever anybody asked me about getting wet, I just said, "It's OK - it can't get past my skin".

I was shocked to hear of John McGuinness's injuries in practice for the NW 200. They say he will recover OK, but at his age, I can't help thinking this will be the end of his racing career.

PostSubject: It was the mud......   Cookstown 100 on BBC NI TV tomorrow night (Monday) Icon_minitimeSun May 14, 2017 5:27 am

It was the mud I didn´t like ...
When living with my parents it was Essex country roads on the way to work in Walthamstow and if I ever fell off it was into a muddy ditch or muddier field.... Not to joke about it, a Dunmow Club lad choked to death after he lost control, went through a hedge and ended up in a ploughed field face down.... He was reported missing and only found two days later....

Cheers!
